Why Marbaloo?

From the moment I moved to Nashville, I knew I wanted to work in the music and entertainment industry. Marbaloo allows me to use my digital and social media skills that I have learned in school, internships and previous jobs in this industry I am so passionate about. 

What is your thing (Publicity, social media, marketing, design, photography, etc) and why?

Digital marketing, including social media, has definitely become my thing in the last year. It’s amazing to me how we can connect with so many people throughout the world, right at the tip of our fingers. 

Why do you do what you do?

At the end of the day, it’s about forming a connection with others. I do what I do because I love to create messages that can resonate with someone, and see how it can have a personal impact on someone’s life. 

What inspires you?

People are always inspiring me. No matter what job position I hold, or what stage of life I’m at, it’s the people I surround myself with that continue to inspire me to do better every day. It’s so important to have that support system, and I’ve been so lucky to gain that since moving to Nashville. 

How do you like to spend your free time?

Fitness has become such a huge part of my life, so you’ll find me at the gym at either 5 or 6 a.m. most mornings (yes, I am that crazy person). I also love trying new restaurants on the weekends with friends, or simply going to listen to good music. 

What do you wish people knew about you?

I have a strong musical background. I played the piano for 14 years and used to participate in competitions! I even played for a semester in college, and was able to take lessons from a highly recognized professional pianist. 

What’s your favorite saying? I find myself saying all the time, “Everything happens for a reason.” One year ago, I could never have predicted being where I am at today. However, I fully believe that every step leading up to where I’m at happened exactly how it should have. Nothing is ever an accident, and I think it’s important to remember that even when we’re going through hard stages in life, it’s all happening because there’s something greater on the other side. 

What do you do to recharge your creativity?

The key to recharging, in my opinion, is mental relaxation. For me, that’s either taking a barre class, reading a book or going for a long walk outside with my music. All these things also make me stop and think about how blessed I am to be where I’m at in life. It’s just as important to reflect on how far you have come and be grateful. 

What song can't you stop playing right now?

The entire new Jonas Brothers Album. It’s on repeat every time I get in my car.
